Re-emerging as a destination for curious Aussie travellers, Iran is home to some of the best Islamic architecture in the world. Bright blue domed mosques, madrassahs and glittering shrines adorn every town and city while ancient monuments and city ruins lie dotted throughout the country.
Along with these sights visitors are treated to the friendliest of welcomes from Iran.
Leave your preconceived ideas about Iran at home and don’t be surprised at the beauty of the mountains, sea and desert, the relaxed atmosphere in Tehran and the friendliness of the people. Iran is a country which combines sophistication with ancient treasures.
Tehran may not be the cultural heart of the country but you will find palaces, mosques, museums and bazaars as well as trendy cafés and upmarket shopping malls. Hop into a horse-drawn carriage and ride through Esfahan’s graceful Imam Square with the sensational blue-tiled Masjed-e Imam.
Meander through the peaceful gardens of Shiraz and visit the tombs of great poets. Take in the ruins of nearby Persepolis, once a great city in the powerful Achaemenid Empire.
